Accessing JIRA

JIRA uses the same credentials as Backstage but you must log in separately using your Backstage username and password (even if you are already logged into Backstage). 


This is an important difference; Backstage allows you to log in with your email or username plus password, but you must use your username plus password to log in to JIRA. 

To log in to JIRA, follow these steps:

  1. Access JIRA using one of the following options:
  2. Enter your Backstage username and password to log in.

Resetting your password

You cannot reset your password directly in JIRA. If you try, you will receive an email with the following message: This user account is managed in an external User Directory and Jira is not able to update your password.

To reset your JIRA password, you must reset your Backstage password as explained in: How to reset your Backstage account password.
